    The one on the far right ain't too bad looking, in a badly dressed, despondent sort of way... wouldn't mind strokin' his chin though. Chin fuzz fetish ftw! icon_razz.gif

    I flew to England last year to go the Donington Download Festival, specifically to see Iron Maiden, because I've always wanted to see them play Donington, but also saw tons of other great bands there, including Lamb of God, Dimmu Borgir, Unearth, DevilDriver, Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Killswitch Engage, Wolfmother, so many fucking others I can't even remember them all. It was a three day festival with 3 stages and over 100 bands playing. Best time of my life. I've been to Worcester to see In Flames, that's about 3 1/2 hrs, most likely going there again in October to see Amon Amarth, if they don't do a NYC show. Linkin Park played Donington, too, but I left halfway through their set, I was kinda bored by them.

    There's not as much rock as there used to be.

    Nirvana, Radiohead, Stone Temple Pilots...all some fine 90's fare.

    In the 80's we had the hair bands...don't laugh...it was a great time.

    Oh and the late 70's had Van Halen. What a show they could put on in their day.

    Long live rock!!

    Oh yeah, even though I absolutely love the bands I mentioned earlier, I did drive to another neighboring state once to see one of my fav bands in concert, "Kill Switch Engage". And the day I left totally skipped my private lesson with my trumpet professor and my buddy made an excuse to get out of football practice. I ended up getting in trouble, because I had no excuse, I didn't care!

    But.. this is something most of my friends don't know... Once while I was staying in San Jose Ca, in the Summer of 06 a buddy and I purchased tickets to Madonna's confessions tour and flew from SJC to NY... or JFK, I have no idea why i used the airport code for san jose. But anyways, it was a blast!

    They knew I went to NY but didn't know the main purpose! icon_biggrin.gif

    NIN yeah definitely!

    Mostly I'm into Alternative Rock. Not much on the classic and old-school metal stuff.

    And the new genres popular nowadays (emopunk and metalcore like Bullet For My Valentine)... just ugh. I hated Blink 182 anyways.

    I used to like Linkin Park at the height of their popularity. I don't much like them anymore though.

    I saw NIN about 3 years ago in a 2000 person theater here in Reno for their warm-up tour.

    Pretty good, they played Pigface's "Suck" and "Wish" off of Broken...

    I saw NIN live right after they released the "Fragile", one of the best shows I've ever been to.
    Cold and A Perfect Circle were the opening acts.

    oh man I forgot about A perfect circle! I remember back in the day I listened to them.


    Another band that I really love that I totally forget to mention earlier is.

    Bedlight for Blue eyes! The singer is amazing! He has serious vocal skills, and kinda cute too! But his voice just amazes me to no end, I get the chills from him!

    Dude, I love metal! Okay, there is quite a bit that is whack, but I'm picky when it comes to metal!

    I think the most so far was a 3 hour drive to see Morrissey. We had front row center tickets, and when Moz took off his shirt and threw it, I caught it. icon_smile.gif

    Exactly. Most of the new metalcore should be classified as emopunk anyway - Atreyu, Bullet For My Valentine, Killswitch Engine...

    I like industrial and technometal a lot but I don't like old school metal that focuses mostly on riffs. I dunno, I find it lame and chauvinistic. heh

    I'm more into songs that something really went into instead of mindless screaming and chordplay.
